I am a permanent salaried employee, I use my personal vehicle for business purposes, my company pays for my fuel, but I only recently started receiving a travel allowance, it has been worked into my current package so I don't get paid more it has just been incorporated into my salary package.

My question now is, will I be able to claim for the maintenance as per SARS calculation and my logbook? I have been using my vehicle since the start of the tax year, but as mentioned only started getting a travel allowance recently. I have kept a logbook for all company travels.

You would need to apportion the usage then between the two periods. So for instance when you claim the depreciation before the travel allowance you would apportion that amount for the number of months which you used the car.
